Okay, the pic above is a re-gram from our friends at @Sub_Pop—the top of the Space Needle isn’t very big, so for one of our Nordstrom peeps to get up there last night, a member of Mudhoney was going to have to leave. Which just wouldn’t do.
However, our entire Nordstrom Men’s Shop crew will be on the ground TOMORROW for Sub Pop’s Silver Jubilee—a free music festival in Seattle’s Georgetown neighborhood, celebrating 25 years of subterranean sounds from our hometown’s most iconic record label. So, you can expect plenty of live updates throughout the day. Follow @NordstromMen on Instagram for real-time glimpses of Built to Spill, Mudhoney (yes, again), J Mascis, METZ, Father John Misty, Shabazz Palaces and more. Visit Sub Pop’s blog for the full lineup.
Our friends across the pond at Topman were kind enough to provide us with some fest-ready clothes, so you might see a street-style snap or two, as well. Speaking of Topman—in collaborating with them over the past year, we’ve noticed England and Seattle have a lot in common. We both get our fair share of rain (and kind of like it). We both have cool accents (not really). And we both birth some killer bands. So we were delighted (but perhaps not surprised) when their fantastic blog team published Topman’s top-five Sub Pop albums the other day. Check them out, from Nirvana to Beach House, here.
